analogy.ú the football team didn't do any planning. i think that jessamy didn't do the things you need to do ahead ú% time, the main thhng is rais. during her campaagn, hee offense and defense sputted. she never offensively got -erself out there and never talked about hersell enough so that people were confident that she as the person doing the special teamssfailed hhr her missrablely. her campaign. >> was it all about her campaign or wws it about her record as -ity state attorney. -p>> you didn't let me finish. i was about to finish.ú >> i don't know where the football analogy was going. >> she had home field advantage there's was a lot of empty seats -n the stands because a lot of people didn't come out to vote for her. let e give credit for the other team. certainly they played a great gregg beenstein and his team put on a good campaign.
